  • Nowitzki (ankle) will remain out through the rest of October, Dwain Price of Mavs.com reports. Nowitzki continues to nurse an ankle injury that's plagued him for several weeks, and the Mavs aren't in any hurry to get him back on the floor. Expect the veteran to work his way back into the mix in a limited role sometime in November.

  • Nowitzki (ankle) was spotted walking on a treadmill and riding a stationary bike during Tuesday's practice, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. After Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle said last Friday that Nowitzki wouldn't be ready for game action for at least two weeks, the veteran big man hasn't given much evidence to suggest he's nearing a return to the court. Until Nowitzki is able to resume practicing regularly without restrictions, the Mavericks likely won't provide a firm target date for his return. Once healthy, the 40-year-old could be deployed off the bench, but even if he starts, Nowitzki may see his minutes per game tail off for the third consecutive season. Dorian Finney-Smith, Maxi Kleber and Dwight Powell should be the main beneficiaries of added playing time for the duration of Nowitzki's absence.

  • Head coach Rick Carlisle said Friday that Nowitzki (ankle) will be out for at least another two weeks, Dwain Price of the Mavericks' official site reports. Nowitzki had already been ruled out for the regular season opener on Wednesday, but his absence will now extend at least another three or four games. It wouldn't be surprising if the Mavericks took even longer to clear Nowitzki given the stage he is at in his career, and when he does return, his minutes will likely be very limited off the bench.

  • Nowitzki (ankle) confirmed Thursday that he won't be ready for the regular-season opener against the Suns on Oct. 17, Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News reports. At the start of October it was announced that Nowitzki was weeks away from a return, so it doesn't come as a huge surprise that the veteran big man will miss at least the first game of the regular season. He's still working through some lingering ankle soreness and the Mavericks have no reason to rush him back. There's a decent chance he misses subsequent games following the opener as well, so it will simply be a situation to monitor on a game-to-game basis. Nowitzki is expected to open up the campaign in a bench role for the first time in his career and he'll certainly be expected to get nights off occasionally for rest, which all work against his fantasy value.

  • Both Nowitzki (ankle) and coach Rick Carlisle acknowledged Wednesday that the veteran is likely weeks away from returning to the court, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News reports. The Mavericks' regular-season opener is exactly two weeks away, so this report seemingly rules Nowitzki out for that contest, and it wouldn't be surprising if the veteran big man was forced to miss additional contests as well. Though Dallas is hopeful the summer additions of touted rookie Luka Doncic and center DeAndre Jordan will vault the team back into playoff contention, the team has little incentive to rush Nowitzki back early on in the season while he works back from April ankle surgery. Once Nowitzki gets his conditioning in order and gains clearance to play in games, it's likely his minutes count will be monitored carefully, with the 40-year-old also a candidate to rest for one half of back-to-back sets. That reality makes Nowitzki a rather unappealing fantasy selection in most formats, even as a late-round dart.
